Holtec International, the company decommissioning Plymouth’s Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station, has proposed to dump millions of gallons of radioactive waste water from the now-closed station into Cape Cod Bay. This is a huge threat to the environment and public health for Massachusetts residents.
To have your voice be heard, sign the petition to save Cape Cod Bay!
Save Our Bay, a stakeholder coalition of conservation groups, industry groups, local leaders, and concerned citizens, is working on the ground and rallying communities around the need to stop Holtec’s plan to dump radioactive waste water into the bay.
It will take massive public pressure to halt Holtec and we need your help. Sign the petition today asking Governor Charlie Baker to enforce current state regulations that prohibit Holtec’s planned discharge of Pilgrim’s radioactive water into Cape Cod Bay.
We are making progress, Attorney General Maura Healey has pledged to block the dumping, along with other supporters, groups and organizations who have also joined the call listed below:
